When I record video conversations with members of the P.A. for the New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube, I also post here. Many other interviews, relevant to parapsychology, with non-members can be viewed at

Jason Reza Jorjani interviewed on The Spectral Revolution


Jason Reza Jorjani is a philosopher and faculty member at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. He is author of Prometheus and Atlas.

Here he describes how humankind often confuses the technological worldview of scientific theory with reality itself. Jorjani maintains that we have become mesmerized by the specters of the ancient, Greek Titans Prometheus and Atlas whose myths foreshadowed the rise of science and technology. Jorjani describes the “spectral revolution” as one in which humanity awakens to the dimensions of consciousness outside of the scientific and technological domain. In particular, he urges study of the paranormal. He believes that if we properly understand the nature of Prometheus and Atlas, we have the ability to foster a new culture that honors the depths of mind in nature.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). His master's degree is in criminology. He serves as dean of transformational psychology at the University of Philosophical Research. He teaches parapsychology for ministers in training with the Centers for Spiritual Living through the Holmes Institute. He has served as vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology, and is the recipient of its Pathfinder Award for outstanding contributions to the field of human consciousness. He is also past-president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate and apply their inner, intuitive abilities.
